Bold and Soothing Monochromatic Rooms

Monochromatic rooms get such a bum rap. We’re always heralding the joys of living in lots of color—bold palettes stuffed with as many hues as we can, but what of those rooms that dare to stand on one color alone? Those rooms who prefer the sophisticated simplicity of a one-color palette? We salute those rooms today.While the word “monochromatic” might elicit images of all neutral spaces bathed in beige, remember that the word actually means “consisting of one color." Meaning a room decked out in pink—hot, baby or rose—would be monochromatic (and quite alluring, if you’re into pink). We’ve rounded up as many monochromatic rooms as we could, in as many different hues as we could, to prove that you don’t have to stuff a ton of different colors in a space to make it colorful. As soft and neutral a monochromatic room can be, it can also be pretty bold, as the evidence will prove:
